This was so much last year! Ready to try something really different!
  • Has humble beginnings but is ambitious
  • A hermaphrodite
  • Is proud of yet afraid of being a hermaphrodite.
Hey Lunar!

Here's a few ideas for you to work off of.
  • The character comes from a species that is naturally hermaphroditic, such as a slug, an earthworm, or another species that may fancy you.
  • They're looking to make it big in the city because they heard all sorts of shinies can be found in the city.
  • Yet... city life confuses them. Why is it only now that gender fluidity is starting to be seen as normal? For them, gender fluidity wasn't an issue. It was a simple fact of life since the species had to pick between who initiates and who doesn't.
  • Cue said character getting even more confused when they start researching all the different cultures of humans, which usually had these gender fluid identities long before mono views and binary views of gender came about.
  • Or go more low-key and just explore why a lot of the language they used for dating with their fellow hermaphrodites has little to no parallel in mainstream human society.

Shinies!! Yes! They are drawn to the humans cause of shiny objects! Definitely using. XD
Those are some good ideas. I love the confusion the character will have while working with humans too.
Here's a few scattered ideas for you ^^
    - Maybe they could be a dancer trying to make it big? It's a rather cutthroat industry, but they're ambitious and ready to do whatever they must to become famous
    - Maybe their character arc could be actually making it big but realizing it's not as fun as they thought. Maybe they could've hurt a few people on their rise to the top and they feel bad and all that stuff
    - They live a very glamorous life, but it's hollow and feels more like a prison than a home

I hope some of these ideas are interesting/helpful for you!

More to think on...Thank you! These will add a fun flair to the character.

Haven't had the energy or brain power to properly set up the character due to being ill and scattered. Art will be added and profile will be fine tuned in time. Picture used is what inspired the character.
